2021-10-04 H Quest Develops Hydrogen Pyrolyzer

This makes hydrogen from methane using electricity, but without CO2. It uses microwaves at 2.45 GHz. from a magnetron.

2021-09-30 Convert CO2 Into Starch

This is the kind of discovery that seriously needs to be researched and developed. This could free up huge amounts of farmland that could be used for other purposes such as reforestation. The CO2 would be prevented from going into the atmosphere and contributing to the greenhouse gases. Starch could be used in place of

2021-08-09 Breakthrough In Battery Technology

He talks about developing batteries taking a long time – years – because it’s like cooking: you put things together and then taste it, to see how it works. They have automated some of the procedures, but it’s still time consuming to do all the lab work to find the right chemistry. That is apparently

2021-07-12 CO2 To Syngas Using Sabatier Process

Read Applications section for pilot plants that use CO2 to make CH4 that can be used in the existing natural gas system. Also it’s being used to power a fleet of cars. Only problem with CO2 capture to syngas is that it doesn’t permanently remove the CO2 from the atmosphere. Quote: << The Sabatier

2021-06-10 Researchers Find New Way To Generate Electricity

This very interesting and promises to capture CO2 from the ocean and turn it into rock.

2021-05-18 Hydrogen Replacing Methane Pros, Cons

This Youtube video Engineering With Rosie interviews a chemical engineer who talks about the problems of replacing some or all of the natural gas with hydrogen. Hydrogen has higher energy per unit weight, but it is much less dense than methane so it has much less energy per unit volume. The natural gas system has

2021-05-18 Tesla Vs Conventional Cathode Production

There is speculation among viewers about what is going to be put into the ‘landfill pit’ being built next to the building at Giga Texas. Some say it’s a landfill; others think it’s too shallow for a landfill. I was reading the following article and noticed that the conventional cathode production has a lot of

2021-05-07 Relithiation To Make Old Batteries Like New

If the old cells were made easier to take apart and reassemble it would be helpful. I think that someday the battery makers may do what Eagle Picher did for batteries on spacecraft. There is a container of electrolyte inside the battery. To activate the battery a small charge blows the electrolyte out of the
